I’m talking about this lil chap who arrived in our house bit over a month ago.
Babies are very determined and persistent. If they need to get their diaper changed, that happens. If they are hungry, they get food. If they need to sleep – well, they first wake up everybody else and make sure somebody comes to help. If they need attention, they make sure they get it. That’s pretty amazing for a creature that can pretty much only cuddle, smile, cry and wave their limbs (in a totally awesome and cool way of course).
There’s just one 2 tools they use:
- Crying louder
(And of course super-extra-mega-unresistable cuteness.)
They are very determined to get their one thing, and then they put 110% focus to get it – and eventually they do.
I’m not sure what happened in my life, but somewhere after the baby age I stopped doing this. If I want something, I usually use the zen-attitude to get it (which works pretty nicely)… but I wonder if I should learn more from my baby. She is so determined to get what she wants.
